It Is Okay To Fail

According to Beverly Sills, “You may be disappointed if you fail, but you are doomed if you don’t try.” Yes, you are doomed if you don’t try. People don’t try because they are afraid of failure. They are afraid of other people’s opinions. They don’t want to fail. But if you have the courage to try, even if you fail, you are not a failure. You are a winner. Don’t be scared to try something new. Don’t be scared to get out of your comfort zone. Remember, no matter what it is, if you don’t try, you will never win. So if you want to win, if you want to join the top ten, you must try. You must cultivate the courage to try.

Albert Einstein said, “Failure is success in progress.” It is okay to fail. Just be patient with yourself. As Adel Bestavros once said, “… patience with self is hope…” The purpose of your life is to fail your way to success.

When you fail, be patient with yourself. Because life is a battle ground. You are here to strengthen your muscles. Rainer Maria Rilke said, “The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.” If you want to win in your life, make failure your best friend, not your enemy.

How To Build Your Life Around Self-Confidence

You can’t build your life around fear. Fear is real, but do not let it stop you from doing what you want to do. Nothing is perfect. Do not wait to be perfect before you start something. You are not doing what you are supposed to be doing because you don’t want to fail. If you want to make it in life, you can’t avoid failure. If you are not failing, you are not trying hard enough. If you are not crying in your bedroom, you are not making enough mistakes. Dan Rockwell writes, “Imperfect progress today is better than perfect progress tomorrow.” Yes, it is better to make a mistake than to get stuck in a rut. To pursue your goals, don’t fear mistakes, fear not making enough. Build your success around making mistakes, not around fear. In fact, don’t wait for things to happen to you. Instead, get out of your comfort zone to make things happen for you. Yes, it can happen. You have done it before. Don’t doubt yourself. Believe in yourself. Build your life around self-love, self-confidence, not self-doubt. With self-confidence, you can really accomplish a lot of things in your life. Remember that you are in charge of your life. You can do whatever you say you can do. You can’t do whatever you say you cannot do. You can accomplish a lot in your life if you can just focus on the process, not on the results. Because learning is about the process, not about the results.
